Canon i-SENSYS MF229dw Driver and Software

Wednesday, March 27th 2019. | i-SENSYS Series

Canon i-SENSYS MF229dw Driver and Software for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux – Besides having many advantages, there are also disadvantages that are still seen in the latest Canon i-SENSYS MF229dw. One of the problems is that this Japanese printer is not compatible with infusion systems. If we force to change Canon printers to the infusion system, the printer can experience errors.

Also, intravenous hoses will interfere with other parts of the printer so they cannot work correctly. Though the infusion system is widely used to save printing costs. Apart from being incompatible for infusion, Canon i-SENSYS MF229dw cartridge is also quite expensive. Though to get a good print result you have to use the original ink from the original cartridge. The cartridge which is sold at high prices can be a compensation for the cost of cheap Canon printers.

Another disadvantage is the Canon i-SENSYS MF229dw print color that is still less sharp with the results of Epson printers. This is seen from the color of human skin printed on photo paper. The various disadvantages of Canon printers make it less suitable for the printing industry. This Japanese product can meet consumer expectations for a quality printer at a price that is not too expensive. Various variants were also launched to meet the needs of different communities. However, some shortcomings also have Canon brand printers. The advantages, disadvantages, and options of the latest Canon printers should be taken into consideration before buying a product.
